more of an argument for both of them, but i don't think the other one will be for us if this passes. since most of their business is delivery, if you have them closer to each other, you can have drivers driving less distance, burning up less gas and generally be a little bit more favorable to the environment, if you are not going further distances to deliver pizza. also, it is nice to have something that is walkable in a neighborhood. a lot of times you come home and want to get a quick bite and you don't want to have to move your car again or take a bus to get something to eat. you just want to get some food and go home and there are quite a few residences in this area. a lot of parking lot apartment buildings and condos and they mentioned they are getting a higher percentage of walkout traffic in addition to just delivery. it's replacing an existing eating and drinking establishment. that the present owner testified that his price point was too high to be successful. and you know, it just wasn't going to work. so either have a vacant place or you will have this. and finally, lo
rounds and fires six rounds. the basic that you would see either a police officer in the past would use or you will see even the criminals out there with revolvers still. all right? hundreds and hundreds of thousands of revolvers in the country and they are not illegal in california. let me go to the semiauto that the officers carry, neck, any questions on the revolver. >> for each bullet have you to pull the trigger. >> that is correct, each time that you have to turn it and it fire and turns. >> if it is a semi, or a revolver you have to press the trigger every time for each round to come out. >> in 1994, 18 years ago jim galf was killed at pioneer franklin and we all did not have the same guns at the time, some still had revolvers and others had purchased semiauto mat semi auto mat ticks and where the suspect had a german ak 47 and held off 120 police officers for a half hour firing 500 rounds before the swat took him out and prompted the department to go to a standardized weapon just so that we would have a chance. >> that is correct. >> this is a semiauto. also inoperatable. it is
parties understand consultant who will be used. they can work out the proportion of how the funding will be done mutually to the mutual satisfaction. i don't want to get involved in the economics of it. there will be no possible feeling that things are not objective if it is just being paid by or prove but one side. i think the entertainment commission will sign off too. >>: commissioners on that motion to continue to april 11 for either mutually agreed upon sound engineer analysis or independent sound analysis and proportion of cost sharing from the entertainment commission to determine maximal levels of noise. >> commissioner antonini: aye >> commissioner borden: aye >> commissioner hillis: aye >> commissioner moore: aye >> commissioner sugaya: something else came to mind, my other comment on frequencies. it seems that mr. saltar, i have a quick question. i forget your name. i'm sorry. you guys can come up. is there a way to take into consideration the type of sound transmission, phase in, high-end, that kind of thing where you are sitting in the theater you may not hear the
proposition c was passed which requires us also to review and provide input for the city services auditor and also the whistle blower program. we have nine appointed members, and they're appointed -- over here on the left hand side are the names of the members. we have the vice chair john [inaudible] in the audience. some of us are appointed by board of supervisors, one by the mayor, and one by the civil grand jury and two by the controller and in my case i will be leaving the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee shortly and i would urge another small business person if possible. my particular role is being active in a business organization. i think it would be great to have another small business person that comes into this role. so some of the things that we did this year we changed the frequency of our meetings from four times a year to six times a year, and we did that because we felt we didn't have enough time to address the bonds. i believe it's up over $2 billion in bonds which is a lot of money and a lot of responsibility and we thought more frequent meeting
hours of our time asking people to comply. the restaurant would be for us, a nuisance that we don't want to have to deal with yet another one. my question is why can't it be either remain a residential space or can it be a commercial space other than a restaurant? i understand that people are trying to make money and go into business, and those are my comments. thank you. >> hello commissioners. thank you for your time tonight and for staying so late. i wish the restaurant was open, so i could go eat right now. my name is terry besswick and i spoke to you a couple of weeks ago. i won't give you the history of the castro country club and i think we heard unanimous support from the commission and the witnesses. i live upstairs from the castro country club for five and a half years and my bedroom is actually bordering the back patio that has been talked about a little bit. i think there was a lot of confusion at the last meeting regarding the back patio. we discussed no ambientneys, noise from the activity itself and no smell from the restaurant as well. we support our landlord. our land
in the entire store at least in this photo. there are on the first floor five tables when the conditional use says two. it's limited to 15 seats; there are more seats than 15. how the staff does not consider this is in violation is beyond me. i cannot see how we can consider this without them first issued an nov and go through the process. also the north beach neighborhood commercial district, section 7221 of the code specifically says, special controls are necessary because in over concentration a food service establishments limits retail sales and personal services in an area that needs them to thrive the neighborhood. needs to maintain neighborhood retail sales and personal services to maintain residential livability. additional eating and drinking establishments are prohibited in spaces occupied by neighborhood services involved in retail sales. i take that to mean that an accessory use is not the primary use of that space in this establishment has been in violation of that for years. is the same case faced in the poor house, retail sales with wine tasting. when they opened or shortly
for conditional use authorization. >>: my name is christina moreno planning department staff. the item is a request for a conditional use authorization at the property on one eight six five post street. approximately 5000 square feet. the project would have live amplified music. the project sponsor was granted a limited live performance llp from their tenant commission on july 25th. it allows for a live performance in an establishment whose primary use is not live music. additional conditions were added to the llp that limited amplified levels and sound system operation. in the august 16 hearing the planning commission continued the case to september 13 to allow the property to address concerns. from december 6 to feb. 7 the event was continued. sound inspection was conducted on oct. 18 by the inspector from the entertainment commission. some test indicating that a bona fide sound at 78 decibels was not audible; is limited to 74 decibels. at this level no on the five down should be heard in the adjacent businesses. the project sponsor work with west coast sound solution. the followin
, and organizer, pacific engager in the community. i grew up in the community-based on the parents teaching us to be involved in the community. i have seen quite a number of businesses across the street at the address in question, 1865 post street. when i noticed that pa'ina was being built i took a special interest and i continued to observe and watch. i was impressed. i found out that jim knew my mother and father and worked at a plumbing store, and i used to go there as a little girl to get my nuts and bolts and always had long conversations with jim. that gave inspiration to go in. i met everybody. i was totally impressed to see that it was gutted out from post to gary street, unbelievable. the work done in design and displays not to mention the lighting, structure, set up, stage entrance to the front door, , harmony that is there. menu, restaurant, the food, entertainment everything impressed me. my brother is a jazz musician that has played all over san francisco and all over filmore. i asked how can i help. i gathered community bands from the farmers market; i asked if i could brin
that rightly rests with all of us here in city hall, so i do believe i'm a glass half full type of person and i think out of challenge comes opportunity, but i do think we need to have this discussion -- not only about this individual issue, but the larger discussion about what is happening with us as a city. are we making sure as we have this great wealth that we are taking care of the neediest in our communities and not just the neediest it's also working folks and middle class folks. it's a lot of people that feel that -- rightly feel they're being left behind so i think that is a larger discussion but i think that we need to provide some context for why people are feeling this way. thank you. >> thank you supervisor. so i want to thank again the mta. i want to thank bevin, hope and of course to jason i want to especially thank you for all the work that you do. i think it's hard work everyday what you're trying to accomplish. i want to say thank you to that and of course to the speakers. i appreciate that and even though we are divergent at this moment. colleagues we have heard the mo
beach. when you consider the use of this building for an extraction site it should be denied. i think it is an expensive project. it is disruptive. there are a lot better alternatives. thank you for your time. >>: and if further general public comment? seeing none general public comment is closed. >>: this will place you under your regular calendar. items 10 a-c have been continued to feb. 14. items 4 and 5 have been pulled. >>: request from commissioner antonini. >> commissioner antonini: i ask for a recusal from 3110 octavia. my dentist's office is within 500 feet. i ask for recusal. >>: move to recluse commissioner antonini. >>: second. >> commissioner borden: aye >> commissioner moore: aye >> commissioner sugaya: aye >> president wu: aye. >>: so moved. >>: michelle- planning staff. 3110 octavia st., request by at&t to install fiber wire. the mail notice calls it as a northeast corner. the general language has been updated. proposed facility consits up to nine antennas. staff has received no public comment and staff is recommending approval with conditions. i am available for q
and go to planning. we used to ask them to call. we now have a special form. the process is expensive and long. we don't want to make someone go through it only to learn later that they can't do what they want to do or there are constrains they did not know about. in the planning department they will find if the use is permitted. they won't be heard by the an agenda commission until we have heard from planning. the planning department gets the application and holds it like the other departments. i get something back that says planning approved. and gives me some other information for the record. the process continues. there is a public hearing where the commission hears about the proposed use. we hear from sfpd in the permit officer at the permit station; we hear from the applicant; the commission will vote on the application and may attach conditions. the applicant is usually not done with inspections at that point. 40 days have elapsed, not a lot of time to have heard from six departments. once they are done with the long list the last thing is the sound inspection. we hav
understand your point of view. i think it's a good opportunity for us to focus on what could be done and what more to do and what we need with the vehicle component. >> i understand. any other questions? >> supervisor cohen. >> thank you. i wanted to take a minute and complement you and your team as well as you bevin and reaching out and finding four people. that is something to be acknowledged and i am really excited about that. >> quite a few more people expressed interest in it and wanted to learn about the possibility of having their vehicle stored. i'm just reporting on the folks i met with individually after we fliered who called me. people spoke with the outreach workers and got the same set of information. i am looking at the second level of people who really decided to affirmatively push for contact before the legislation that wanted the information and that maybe the higher functioning folks out there. >> thank you. why don't we open up this item for public comment? are there members of the public that would like to speak on item two? i don't have speaker cards in f
for this. all bunch of us work hard to get through prop c. we are the first folks to come to you and we need this approval. we don't have a project if we don't have this approval. we will start this project in the next two weeks if we get the approval. that's it. 12 minutes. not a very good presentation, i apologize. >>: calling for public comment. i have one speaker card. paula richard. >>: good afternoon. i am paula richard. i work with plant construction. i have been at plant for about 13 years, construction manager and vice president on this project if there is a project. i was asked to take a minute and reiterate what is in my letter. we bid out all of the subcontract work, probably 50 subcontractors ready to go as well once the project goes forward. if you're not familiar with plant construction we want to point out a couple of things. we are a san francisco company company, we been here for 65 years. of the next 26 months there will 521,000 man hours translated in the range of 125 people average per day and up to 200 workers at the peak. if you have any questions i will b
and i appreciate you fitting us in here, so they have a point by point analysis of what they found to be troubling, and in most case its wasn't the citizen's general obligation bond oversight committee to respond. it was the controller's office to respond. there were a few points that we had to respond to and one had to do with the frequency of meeting and where the whistle blower program was on the website and how available it was, and also how do we oversee it? what level of depth do we get and that's when we had discussions having to do with the privacy because if you don't feel you're anonymous you will definitely not come forward as a whistle blower versus the need for us to get more detail we were getting prior to that, so all of that, the civil grand jury member was certainly a part of that discussion, but the decision and the -- i wrote the report, and the decision was made by the entire committee. >> just a final question in terms of the staffing of this nine member body because you you're all volunteers, and we appreciate all the time that you put into it, so is there a
fund. and then the use of the general re serve of 32.2 million. we are assuming you will need to use all of that reserve in order to balance the budget. and then the deposits to reserves, because of our increases to revenue, amount to 11 million. so, that brings us to a projected fund balance estimate of 174 million. as i mentioned before, 103 million of that was already committed to the year two. and the replenishment of the general re serve that we will be using this year needs to be incorporated in next year's budget, leaving us with a projected surplus of $38 million. so, the next slide provides you with a summary of our major tax revenue in the city and it shows you where the bulk of that surplus 72 million come from. and that is property transfer taxes, about $21 million over the budget as we are taking a look at the cash we've received thus far and estimating how much additional property tax revenue we will get for the reminder of the year. our second-largest is -- yes. >> if we can go back to the previous slide, the projected surplus, 38.3 million, how does that relate to the
in one day, and a great work on his part with getting or helping us on that. and we had to go out and get more money to pay off the people that return these guns, which was a great effort to almost equal less than the arrest with just one day of work. and this is not, and this is just ones of the arrest that we are talking about and 314 and there are other weapons that are seized at different crime scenes or found, a lot of times these guns are found in abandoned vehicles and house and people report them in back yards when we find them and we try to track those and try to find out if we can associate them with a crime. >> excuse me. >> we also track them, there is a board at dc beal's office that tracks the homicides and shootings every day. and that goes back to 2008 and it is a big white chalkboard that each day updated daily, whether we have shootings, homicides and that way the chief and the deputy chief can look at our response in what we are doing. here is currently our system by which we are respond to the 217s. we call them, the shootings out on the streets on a daily basis. i kno
of this special district use legislation. very briefly i did want to state that the sud is contingent on the lease negotiations that the mta is conducting with the owner of 1741 powell. the negotiations are going. our requested for a continuance of one week. >> president fong: additional public comment on the two items proposed for continuance? >>: my name is richard hamlin longtime resident of north beach. i want this project very much. extraction down at the pagoda and perhaps someday having a station there. >>: -- we submitted a legal letter to the planning commission. -- opposes and objects to the extraction at the pagoda and zoning map amendment and special use district on the grounds of this project is obviously very different from the original project that was approved in the eir by example the geotechnical engineers letter included in the package points out the very high water table and the de-watering and pressure on adjacent buildings not evaluated on a previous eir. also,-- >>: this public comment is only to the continuance itself. >>: should i make comments during the g
balance of $38.3 million. we started the year with a balance of 220 million. 104 million of that was used to balance this year's budget. as you recall in a two-year budget, we were appropriating for two fiscal years. this year and next year. so, 104 million was appropriated in year one. and then if you see under column d another 103 million was appropriated for year two. so, the mayor's office policy which was adopted by the board, [speaker not understood] take that starting balance and allocate it for each of the two fiscal years. >> does that include where we allocated -- when we send the budget stabilization reserve, [speaker not understood] fund balance? >> that's right. so, current year -- >> [speaker not understood]. >> right. so, we have $116 million available. much of that is going to be counted for next fiscal year. $72 million of current revenue. and in the next slide we'll show you exactly what sources that 72 million comes from. baseline contributions, that is, we have to pay $9.5 million to get to our base lines. department of operations, if you take all of the revenue, gains
of the city, we really deeply appreciate the year of support that you have given us already last year and look forward to the continuing support of funding to backfill this. what it means to us specifically is that there's a long waiting list in the city. we have a long waiting list of people that need subsidized child care. a couple years ago it was about 3,000. right now it almost sits at 5,000 people waiting for child -- affordable child care slots. and the working families going to school, working very hard, if they didn't get this child care, specifically at our site, we would lose about 30 families and children. so, if they don't have subsidized child care, they might not be able to work, not go to school, not be productive citizens of san francisco. so, i urge you seriously to consider this for this year and in future years to help the families that we serve on a daily basis in san francisco because it makes a difference. and this city is taking leadership if you do support this. i appreciate the time and effort and hope you support this wholeheartedly. thank you. >> thank you very much
to full staffing, especially now that we initiated these efficiency plans that get us more people, but creating units is nothing something that is a luxury that i have right now. >> we actually had officers out of vrt that enjoyed that and took it upon themselves to make sure that they got that list down and paired it down, i think that we went through that list in about, seven or eight or nine months. >> but, again, it manifest itself and so we will get a fresh list and start it up again. >> that was one of criticisms that we have, not we but we have a law and some law enforcement are not talking the responsibility or the opportunity. >> commissioner that was a complete go to the fridge and get the box and we went right through the list. marshall, a couple of things. >> commissioner kingsley, and do the prevention piece, i have never looked at the department as a that it is not their forte, i don't think that it should be, they put into place because and because they are doing their best. i think that it is the community responsibility for do the prevention piece and i think that
for us to hear a vision. i am curious to know if there is anything that you could add to your statement as to how you heard about this vacancy and why you're applying. >>> i was here, i think it was october, and i gave a very similar testimony. and i don't remember, someone told me about it and said, you should go down and apply. we were talking last year sometime. and i was here in november when you had a meeting here then. i'm sorry, your second question? >> the second question is -- >>> what more could i do to help veterans? well, when i was at [speaker not understood] community center and putting people to work in the construction apprenticeship program, i would work a lot with the state division apprenticeship standards which monitors what apprenticeship programs do in the state of california. one of the things they told me was they said why don't you just focus on the construction trades when there's over 400 apprenticeship programs in the state of california that's been approved and bonded by the state division of apprenticeship standards. i'm like my own boss. i have bosses who
'll be using all of that this year, but it will be sufficient. and the state revenue reserve is estimated to be used partly with the supplemental appropriation that you've already considered. and then probably for the health department. >> thank you. just a question on the budget stabilization reserve. under what conditions are we able to withdraw and utilize those funds? it has to be after several years of -- >> of positive revenue news. and then when we do use it, it's only a portion of the deficit. the revenue deficit. we had suggested that the controller provide a more broad summary of all of the reserves and the set asides when the committee goes to five members. [speaker not understood] the kind of rules and policies regarding all of these reserves. since the financial policies were in effect a couple of years ago, we really have made a tremendous amount of progress in establishing reserves that have been looked upon very favorably by the rating agencies and though more importantly we will have money available in the next downturn that will keep us on a more steady footing in terms
. i don't think you're -- i mean we have a gay community center and you're not using it for outreach to get to the people to tell you how to spend the money to calm the traffic down. i mean we have better streets. we have smart streets. i mean you can lump it into different programs, different names, different acronyms, but people are seeing the traffic calm and pedestrian safety for everybody, and you know if you're going to be spending this money i think that it should be looked at at market and guerrero. we need to slow the traffic down there especially in the morning when drivers are trying to get downtown so thank you. >> thank you. is there anyone else that would like to speak from the public? seeing none public comment is closed. i did want to make a comment that i think dr. -- [inaudible] from the department of public health and others can quantify when you have successful traffic calming projects or slow down 5 miles per hour around schools or key areas it saves lives and i think it's really important and makes sense to shift to the arterials strategically but i hope
at its may meeting. this timelines allow us to get these to the project sponsors on the due date. more information can be found on our website. and with that i can take questions on the program or this particular -- any bit of the local expenditure criteria. >> thanks for getting so much information so quickly, but it's good to see our 4-dollar per vehicle dmv money going to great projects and this is for six to 10 projects? >> typically it's the amount of money from the past years and the number of projects we're able to partially or fully fund. >> and the criteria is similar to last year criteria as well? >> almost identical. any other questions colleagues? commissioner yee. >> my question is pretty much a process question. the content was okay. in regards to the criteria and one of the things that was stated in the criteria that didn't pass yet is that projects, request for projects would be due on march 2 or something like that, which i didn't understand if we're passed it today how does one prepare for a request by march 2? >> thanks for the question. the way we set up the cal
procurements and replacing our fleets and the depending on the line it's intended to use for we may up scope. i know the long-term plan is increase the 60 feet vehicles in the plan and that is reflected in the fleet plan. >> thank you. commissioner breed. >>i just wanted to ask a quick follow up question to that. has mta looked into the possibility of increasing the size of the trains for the n judah? >> you mean increasing the physical size -- well, . >> well, first of all increasing the size and if new trains are purchased? >> to answer that question. right now we're in the process of scoping the replacement vehicles that will replace them so we're in that process so we will look at the size of the vehicles and the number of seats in the vehicle. that is being worked on right now. that is in anticipation of purchasing 24 additional light rail vehicles for the central subway when it comes on line and that if for the vehicles that we'll need with that and deal with overall growth at this point in the overall muni network. on top of that we are looking at -- i believe the fleet plan call
been in this chamber in the last year, when four times the same excuse was used to rearrange the ago ahead agenda, we have attorneys in here, they are expensive, it is not like it is a big surprise. >> if that is what your priority is, put them third rather than putting them somewhere else and rearranging at the last minute. in addition seven other times i have observed on sfgtv in the last year, whether that was done, that is 11 times, in one year. now, you have about 3 meetings a month in this chamber, others are held at different locations. that is about 36 meetings a year, which is pretty high percentage. all that i am saying is, when the public comes they should have an expectation that they can rely on your agenda, if you feel that the expense for the court reporters and the attorneys or whatever is so critical, why not just put it third on the agenda and take general public comment and let the public know we are going into closed session. rather than doing what you seem to do which is wait until the public shows up based on the agenda that was put out under the law and then si
to figure it out you don't want us to do that because you will not like the outcome. i support the continuance. and come back with something that works for everybody. >> president fong: public comment is all finished. thank you. commissioner borden. >> commissioner borden: i've been to pa'ina loung. the food is great, the entertainment is great. i've been to kabuki also, it's great. we really want to be able to support all the businesses but we need the support all businesses. there needs to be a sound study, a couple of different determinations. seeing it would level the sound bleeds; turning it up to see a what point it bleeds, gives us a base line. also having one sound report. i am not a sound expert. i do know what is too loud. we want to support pa'ina loung and all existing businesses; we don't want to support pa'ina at the expense of the ot her businesses especially when you had a citation not to long ago. we need to get to the bottom of the soundproofing issue before we can move to the next step. what you are hearing is the desire to support the pa'ina loung but fig
a three-quarter vote for us to issue more bonds. in addition to what julie has mentioned, while we want to constrain the costs, we have also been achieving a great deal of savings on our revenue bond issuances. we have refunded every revenue bond that we could, achieving $52 million of rate payer saving over the last three years. in addition, we sold sewer bonds on monday morning and we were the first city department to sell bond since the city's geo bond rating was upgraded. and the market received us very, very well. we saved rate payers over $150 million because of the aggressive bidding buyers wanted to buy san francisco sewer bonds. we achieved foreign rates at about 3.58%. so, while julie and i give you the good news and the bad news, we're balancing the budget and we want to do that to make sure rates stay as affordable as we can. >> another option we would have, too, supervisor, we have an ongoing capital program for our water enterprise and there's been question that some of the improvements in that program could be deferred slightly and some of the wsip improvements could be m
. so, this allowed us to not only put on a great sell braaetionverctiontion, but to also fundamentally change the experience that the 10 million visitors a year who come to the golden gate bridge have. if you've been out there, we've built a 3500 square foot pavilion. it's a visitors pavilion and welcoming center. there are interpretive panels and photographs and videos that you can see there and merchandise that tell you a lot about the golden gate bridge. and we have some artifacts in that pavilion that have never been seen before by the public. so people now can actually get a sense of their rich history of the golden gate bridge and how it was built and the men and women in labor who built that bridge. and, so, it's really fantastic. we also improve the outdoor plaza area so there's more open space. we improve the pedestrian and bicycle path. so, really it's a much more pleasant place to visit now so we're really, really proud of that. on the fiscal side of things at the district, it has been a difficult time, as with any governmental quasi-governmental agency. but in 2009 the boar

. >> is there no deferred maintenance here and other garages that it would be more appropriately used for? >> well, that's what this bond issuance is for, in terms of an mta wide, so we can address concerns related to all the garages, not just japan center. or sutter stockton. so, that is our main concern, is that knowing that not only this garage needs improvements, but city-wide as well. >> i understand that, but that seems to me like you're taking bond money, then, and transferring it through a wheel to operational expenses. to the budget analyst analyst. >> mr. chair, as we understand it, the bonds that have been issued are taking care of their capital improvement needs. * so, this in effect winds up as surplus and can be transferred for operating expenditures to the mta. so, they're not short changing their capital needs as we understand it. >> thank you, i appreciate that. i guess my question is but by issuing the debt, you say you're not short changing the capital needs, but tame point in time you're [speaker not understood] and you're issuing bonds against it for operational expenses. you're flo
, in order to both issue the debt and also for us to issue the debt to refinance the garage debt, and also as a result of a number of recommendations that came from a controller's audit that was performed in 2011, we restructured all the leases. we developed a standard lease form that incorporates many of the recommendations from the controller's office and also other things that we needed to have in place in order to issue the debtorthat we wanted to have in place in order to issue the debt. so, we've been working through the different garages to get the new lease terms in place. you recently approved two leases for -- one for the [speaker not understood] garage and one for the 5th and mission garage. in some of these cases the existing nonprofit entities have decided to change their role and shift to a more advisory structure and that's what happened with ellis o'farrell at 5th and mission. in other cases such as the two that are before you today, the nonprofit has wished to remain in place and continue serving the function that i referenced. so, what we have before you are those two lea
